Shiga Tour Guide - Koichi W.

Koichi W.

4.95 / 5
(61 reviews)
Japan

Hi! I'm Koichi. I was born in Osaka, I studied in Kyoto when I was a university student. Now I live in Shiga next to Kyoto. I am a national government licensed tour guide. I have been guiding about 160 groups over the past twelve months. I usually guide my customers mainly in Kansai region including Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Kobe and Shiga by public transportation systems. Well, I am curious about Japanese history, especially the history of Japan's ancient times since I was raised next to the world biggest mausoleum of the ancient Emperor called "Nintoku" in Sakai city Osaka which has just become one of the world cultural heritage sites. I dug out some ancient earthen ware vessels around there when I was a primary school student like the adventure archaeologist “Indiana Jones" (It’s our secret!!). That was my hobby. Now, one of my hobbies is outdoor activities such as mountaineering, kayaking, skiing and others. So I would like to take you to some good places where you can enjoy Japanese unique nature. I love to guide foreign visitors from all over the world. I think it is my calling or heavenly given job. Let's go and enjoy together! I hope to see you soon.

Nara Private Tour

My husband and I booked our tour on the GoWithGuide website after reading other reviewers rave about Mimmy and their experiences. We reached out to Mimmy by email and she addressed our concerns and answered our questions about our private tour. My family and friends decided to join us at the last minute. There were very impressed with Mimmy. She was able to address all of our concerns and was very patient with everyone. She met us at our hotel in Osaka as requested and took us to Nara, Nakamachi and we even visited the Goldfish Museum which was awesome. We ended our tour back at our hotel in Osaka. Excellent guide and service. We would all definitely seek Mimmy's service again.

Donna T.

Thank you for 5 stars. I enjoyed our tour with you all and this was a first time for me to take my guests to a golden fish museum. Now I learned a lot thanks to your request. Actually, gold fish is one of Nara 's unique features. Thank you for finding me and a lot inquiries about Japan Your happy guide, Mimmy

Excellent experience

I booked Yasu san for a day trip to Nara for my parents (I've been to Nara before). My parents were delighted. He was always very punctual and kind. He had setup a plan for the day, but also during the day, he came up with suggestions that could be of more interest to my parents and adjusted accordingly. The day went smooth and delightful.

Carlos F.

Dear Carlos Thank you very much for your kind words about the tour and myself. I am also very happy to know that your parents enjoyed the tour, Please give my warmest regards to Luis and Margarita. Yasu

Nara day tour with Michiko

Michiko was very friendly and knowledgeable about the transportation system in Nara allowing us to see so much even though we only had a half day tour with her. She took to us to Nara deer park where we got to see the deer nursery and pet many deers. She also showed us Kasuga Taisha shrine with 2000 lanterns, Todaiji temple where we saw the big bronze Buddha statue, and Mochi making demonstration at a local shop. She was very flexible with what we wanted to do. She altered the tour to accomodate our kids who wanted to spend more time feeding and petting the deers at Nara park. She is very enjoyable to talk to and we highly recommend Michiko to anyone who needs a tour guide in Nara. Thank you Michiko for such a memorable day in Nara.

Ty R.

Thank you so much for the kind review! I also enjoyed a relaxing time with such a lovely family as yours. It was a great pleasure to see the children getting on so well with each other, feeding and petting the deer to their hearts' content. I was so happy to share the moment when a fawn just started to walk! I'm also impressed that you appreciated Japanese culture, history and nature. I hope you will return to Nara in the future!
